Gene name

Comments [?]

Function Converts the preformed base xanthine, a product of nucleic acid breakdown, to xanthosine 5'-monophosphate (XMP), so it can be reused for RNA or DNA synthesis.
Catalytic activity XMP + diphosphate = 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate + xanthine.
Pathway Purine metabolism; XMP biosynthesis via salvage pathway; XMP from xanthine: step 1/1.
Subunit Homodimer.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the purine/pyrimidine phosphoribosyltransferase family. Xpt subfamily.
